We have released SIM7070G in xBee form factor that works with Freematics ONE+ Model A. Support for SIM7070 has been added to the Arduino library for ONE+. Please note that only HTTPS works at the moment.
SIM7070 series is SIMCOM’s latest lower cost LPWA module which supports wireless communication modes of CAT-M/CAT-NB/GPRS/EDGE. SIM7070G is designed for global market with a wide range of supported LTE bands.
SIM7070 is now supplied as one of optional cellular modules with Freematics ONE+ Model A.
We are developing a new App that aims to work with a variety of Freematics products via BLE. With a versatile design, it is capable to support our new hardware products to be released in the future. Currently the Android version is ready for Freematics OBD Emulator MK2 and the iOS version will come online a bit later.
We are pleased to release new Freematics Esprit development board which features ESP32-C3 the new RISC-V WiFi/Bluetooth SoC from Espressif. Similar to previous generation in board layout, the new Esprit board has a USB-C port and onboard ESP32 chip and WiFi/BT antenna.
This board is perfect to use with Arduino core for ESP32.
Chip prices have been skyrocketing and there is still no sign of going back to normal. Prices of automotive grade micro-controllers have almost ten-folded, 9-axis motion sensors tripled, CAN transceivers doubled. As a countermeasure, we have raised production batch volume to trade off for a better unit price. However, we still have to raise prices for several products in order to be sustainable. Some kits will be discontinued due to small volumes. We might also be forced to downgrade motion sensor from ICM-20948 to MPU6050 in Freematics ONE+ from next manufacture batch as the former is not only unaffordable but also difficult to source now. We are trying everything possible to keep supply of our products in this ever crazy world.
SIM7600A-H/SIM7600E-H 4G LTE CAT4 modules in XBee form factor are designed for Freematics ONE+ Model A which features an XBee interface. With an onboard micro USB port, the modules can work as 4G LTE modem for any types of systems with USB. With SIM7600 USB drivers installed, multiple serial ports will be popped up for AT command-set, GNSS NMEA data and firmware upgrade purpose. Dual cellular antenna connectors (IPEX) and one GNSS antenna connector (IPEX) are available.
They are ready to be ordered from our online store now.
Under current COVID-19 lockdown in Australia, we will still keep business as usual as we operate as an online business and logistics is still working well. It is highly recommended for customers to choose DHL Express as shipping method as standard shipping (DHL eCommerce or Australia Post international shipping) may be significantly delayed due to massive passenger flights cancellation. Please understand there could be one day delay on dispatching because we want to help our DHL driver come less often for pickup to reduce their workload.
